In the Mix: Round 10

This week, AFL.com.au’s Michael Whiting predicts that Tom Cutler and Cedric Cox may be in the mix for Round 10 against Collingwood.

Despite another heavy loss at the weekend, it's hard to see too many changes for Sunday's game at the MCG against Collingwood.

Vice-captain Tom Rockliff will be given another week – with the bye to follow – to overcome his dislocated shoulder.

Rebounding defender Tom Cutler (hamstring) could come into consideration, while draftee Cedric Cox was impressive in the NEAFL.

Rhys Mathieson also impressed in the NEAFL, collecting 30 disposals, nine clearances and a goal.

If Chris Fagan wants another tall forward, he might look to Jono Freeman, who kicked four goals at the lower level and was among his team's best players.

Meanwhile, AFL.com.au’s Ben Collins predicts that the Pies will be required to make changes due to injury.

The Pies will be forced to make at least one change for their MCG clash with the Brisbane Lions after midfielder James Aish suffered a fractured cheekbone, and there's no shortage of replacement options.

Among them are defender Matt Scharenberg, who had 41 disposals in the VFL and has averaged 36 touches in his past three outings.

Forward/midfielder Tim Broomhead (37 disposals, seven tackles) regained touch, as did backman Jackson Ramsay (38 disposals and one goal), while father-son gun Callum Brown (29 possessions and five tackles) strengthened his case for an AFL debut.

Returning defender Tom Langdon (34 disposals) was again a strong performer but will likely need to sustain his form for a few more weeks before being considered. 

Josh Thomas continues to play well but will have to bide his time to break into a strong midfield.

The forward options include big man Mason Cox, ex-Docker Chris Mayne and young Ben Crocker.
